Building Cyber Resilience into Portfolio Firms with Security Awareness Training

Cybercriminals are well-acquainted with the cybersecurity dynamic of private equity firms and their portfolio companies. The fact that private equity firms manage large sums of money, and invest in portfolio companies that have limited or lean cybersecurity resources, makes them a desirable target for ransomware attacks.

The majority of cyberattacks begin with a simple phishing email and end with crippling ransomware outages, stolen data and irrevocably damaged business reputations.

Although most companies provide some form of annual training, these compliance driven sessions focus on overly simplistic lures taken from public events that fail to represent the real danger of targeted criminal campaigns. Adding to the challenge, CIOs at private equity firms are hampered by a lack of visibility into all their portfolio firms. Phishing and cybersecurity awareness training programs across their portfolio firms are almost always inconsistent.

In this webinar, eSentire’s experts explore how to build a comprehensive cybersecurity training and testing program that leverages realistic cyber threat scenarios to foster context-relevant cybersecurity awareness that drives behavioral change:

Key Takeaways: 

  • Use risk management data and accurate phishing lures to build comprehensive awareness training
  • Maximize your resources and programs to increase return on investment
  • Conduct testing that improves resilience
  • Meet regulatory requirements and demonstrate program success to your leadership
